    iPad iPad Air 2020 Shipment from online retailers other than Apple. (Walmart, Adorama, Target, etc)

    I was wondering since I haven’t seen anyone post about their iPad Air 4’s shipping if anyone that’s bought from Walmart, Target, Adorama, Best Buy, B&H Photo, etc, if your purchase is showing shipped yet? I ordered my iPad Air on the 15th when Walmart beat everyone to the punch. Space Gray, 64...

    the iPad at $329 gives you a 20w charging brick the iPad Air at $599 gives you an 18w charging brick why is that?

    iPad What happened to my on-screen keyboard?

    Strange thing, the keyboard on my iPad Air (1st gen, IOS 12.4.8) got suddenly split into two halves, for no apparent reason. Haven't changed anything, no new software or updates. Annoying problem, since the split keyboard sits in the middle of the screen, making it impossible to enter text in...

    iPad Should I update to iOS 12.4.3?

    I have an Ipad Air 1, it's running iOS 10. Should I update to iOS 12.4.3? I've heard the battery would be worsened if I updated to iOS 12.4.3. I care a lot about battery life. Should I update? Will the battery truly be worsen? Or is it just a temporary thing and my battery would return to normal...

    iPad 2019 iPad Air Does NOT Support USB 3.0

    USB 3 speeds are supported only on iPad Pro. I was hoping this statement was not true, because it's 2019 and this a new iPad but looks like it is. I chatted with Apple Support and they could not confirm that the latest iPad Air supports USB 3. It was surprising that they did not have technical...

    Should I update my iPad Air from iOS 9.3.2 to iOS 12?

    With the release today of the final version of iOS 12 and having read all the praise for the performance of the new operating system on older devices, I’m really pondering if it’s a good idea to update my iPad Air (1) from 9.3.2 to iOS 12. As you all imagine, I got stucked on iOS 9 for fear of...

    Hi, New here and sorry if there is already a thread on this -I could not find it. I have a 16GB iPad Air. And that storage was perfectly fine when I bought it because I don't store music or photos on it. However after a few years of IOS upgrades I now see that the System is using almost...

    I took my wife's iPad air 1 in to have the charge port replaced at a local repair shop. After returning it to them to fix a couple of serious issues I picked it up again and it at first appeared perfectly good again.

    Purchased iPad Air that is blacklisted...will I get in trouble?

    long story short, I bought an iPad Air 32GB WiFi + Cellular (ATT Unlocked) on eBay from a very reputable company. I’m an avid eBay seller as well. I was so excited to get it, as it’s my first iPad I’ve ever owned. Upon getting it, it worked great. But when I put in an ATT and Verizon SIM card...

    Is my iPad Air 1 dead?

    This fantastic machine has been used heavily by me since the end of 2013, and it was updated right through 11.0.1 with no problems. But now it’s apparently not charging or dead. It’s been plugged in for two days, I tried cleaning the lightning port contacts, I swapped chargers and cords, and...

    Ipad Air 1 with IOS 11

    Hello, I'm wondering if anyone with an Air 1 have updated their device to IOS 11? I'm really curious how well it works now that people have had a couple of days to test it. I'm currently holding off updating but I do want to upgrade if it doesn't make my device unusable. Should I just upgrade...

    Airplay to Apple TV Completely Gone

    Hi, I used Airplay a lot to stream from my iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Air to my Apple TV (2nd Gen I guess, the one before you're able to install apps). Since I updated to iOS 11, my Apple TV doesn't appear in the list of neither the iPhone, nor the iPad anymore, only screen mirroring is still...

    iPad iOS 8.4.1 → iOS 11 on iPad Air 2?

    So believe it or not, my iPad Air 2 is still on the factory iOS 8.4.1. I am already getting messages about the latest versions of apps not working, and it's only a two-year-old OS build (released August 2015). I am thinking to finally make the jump to iOS 11 after hesitating so long due to lack...
